Welcome to our guide to syngonium water propagation, covering all you need to know with step by step instructions and pictures.
Syngonium Water Propagation – Step By Step
Syngoniums grow really fast and you should be able to propagate them easily and regularly.
Take your syngonium and make a cutting underneath the node. It is important yo get a node in as this is where roots will grow from. The nodes are normally where the plant splits into two branches. They may already have aerial roots growing from the node.
Take your cuttings and then put them aside for a couple of hours so the open cut sites can seal over which will reduce the chance of rot. I normally put them in a jar but I don’t fill it with water.
Fill the jar up with water so it covers the nodes. A clear jar is ideal as you can see the roots, they look great.
Make sure they are well lit but don’t get direct sunlight.
They root really quickly, you can see in the picture of mine how well the roots have grown in a few days.
Once they are rooted you can move them to soil or leca, I keep some in a jar permanently on my office desk.
You can see in the image below my syngoniums tht have only been in water for a week but they are already developing good roots.
